The Day Boy and the Night Girl


Published June 12, 2007


Librivox recording of The Day Boy and the Night Girl by George MacDonald.

Read by Laurie Anne Walden.

A boy named Photogen, who has never seen the moon, meets a girl named Nycteris, who has never seen the sun. The two of them must escape from the witch Watho. As usual with George MacDonald, this fairy tale has layers of meaning that go deeper than the story on the surface. (summary by L.A. Walden)

I had not heard of this story either, but it was captivating! Laurie Anne has done an excellent job reading it to us.

It is so nice to see MacDonald's work here in the archive. This tale, which I had never heard of, is just wonderful. Well read by a single reader.
